lol. nice post. For anyone not a member of Makro where it is £446.49 this is a great price for a top rated TV. Currently £549 in Comet & Currys.

It out performs many more expensive sets and is a complete mystery why both this and the Makro deal would be voted cold. Shame on you all.:thinking:

Hot!!

I just posted to make this aware to people mate, as i personally couldn't even tell you where a Makro store is but there certainly ain't one near me

I have this tv and it is really good, the usb supports upto 1TB drives and reads divx. i'm sure i have said this before

HD Ready (1024 x 768) Resolution? isnt this bit low

On paper yes, but the PQ is excellent, easily comparable to a viera

It annoys me when the only thing people look at is the resolution. It is in fact one of the least important items unless you perhaps spend all your time watching bluray as Sky and Freesat only broadcast at 720 anyway and even then other factors come into consideration.

Anyway, I have the LG and my father-in-law has the Panny 42G10 and I can safely say that the sound is so much better on the LG and in my opinion the SD picture quality is as well. Unless you are watching your bluray from less than 6ft from the screen you will be hard pushed to see the difference between 1080p and 720p.

I have this tv its great!, I also have a panasonic plasma 42 inch, this is so much better, the sound is great and the usb port is handy, play my divx movies off the computer onto this and they look great. blurays look amazing through ps3 and as does sd freeview , highly recommended, i paid £500 about 3 months ago.

er why you getting annoyed i just asked a simple question. I disagree when you say resolution is least important factor as if thats the case why would retailers push for these figure and why not stay with good old 640 x 480? bottom line is resolution effect for large screen especially when you use hidef content hence the reason i asked as it seems 1920x1080 pixels is pretty much standard now days

But if you are sitting relatively far from such a screen you will not see a major difference between 720p and 1080p

you wouldnt notice any difference on a 42" screen unless you sat within 6 foot

1080p is a dream come true for the salesmen

Very good TV IMO (probably better than my old man's Panny 1080p) and very easy to calibrate. I've been using these settings for 6 months now and the PQ is stunning.

In that case a large TV definitely isnt the answer, full stop :lol:

I have the PQ3000 (pretty much the same thing), with the above settings I found on AVforums, and the picture quality is fantastic. It look a little pale under normal settings, but the above look so accurate. I turned down the colour to 48, as it was a little strong on my set, but the rest is spot on.

The expert picture tuning is the reason this can look better than the most expensive TVs on the market. After tweaking, it beats nearly every tv for PQ.

Bought this TV yesterday from Makro (see my earlier and cheaper deal- voted cold amazingly cos it's from Makro). Got it set up to my PS3 last night for some Modern Warfare 2(also bought at Makro, for £20- yet this one went hot, all the way to 4117).

I spent a lot of time deliberating on what tv to get and this looks and sounds fantastic.
Thanks for the post about settings. I am happy with the default but anything that further improves it is most welcome.

And James(OP), no ill will for getting more heat than my cheaper option. Not your fault, just a shame so many people on here are incapable of independant and rational thoughts.
